Introducing our exquisite Pakistani rug, carefully crafted and designed with the traditional Ferahan style and a touch of tribal influence. With a beautiful navy background and a rust border, this rug is a stunning piece that will enhance any space.

Originating from Pakistani artisans, this rug showcases the artistry and skill of ethnic Turkmen weavers, mainly from the Esari Subtribe. The wool used in this rug comes from sheep in the Ghazni Province of Southeast Afghanistan, known for its mountainous terrain that produces longer staple, oily, and high-quality wool ideal for carpet weaving.

To bring this rug to life, the raw Ghazni wool is brought to the western side of Afghanistan, near Herat, where it undergoes the meticulous processes of hand carding and hand spinning into carpet yarn. This yarn is then woven on traditional floor looms, often in the weavers' own homes, creating a cottage industry-type production.

With an asymmetrical "Persian" knot type and a durable construction, this rug features a cotton warp and weft, with a wool pile. The double wefts and heavily packed depressed warp weaving ensure longevity and durability, making it one of the most resilient handwoven carpets available.

Adding to its allure, this rug boasts centuries-old, all-natural dye stuffs. The vibrant blue color in this rug is achieved through the use of natural indigo dye, derived from the leaves of the indigo plant. Indigo, one of the oldest known dyes in human history, has been sought after for thousands of years for its ability to produce captivating blue hues.

Measuring at 9'0" x 12'2", this rug is an ideal size for larger spaces, making a statement with its intricate designs and rich color palette. With 80 knots per square inch, we estimate that this rug has a total of 1,246,186 individually hand-tied knots, each adding to its charm and quality.

Embrace the beauty and craftsmanship of this Pakistani Ferahan tribal rug, guaranteed to be an exquisite addition to any home or space.
